USA: Aoudad Hunt At The Rockin G Ranch

A couple of things I left out..... he’s a precision taxidermist. You would t know by looking at him... lol.... in al seriousness. He brought me back my stud Russian boar & coyote from last December. Beyond pleased. Also, it’s pretty kick ass, to know the artist that will be doing your Taxidermie is the one skinning your animal. I swear the dude was way more meticulous than the average surgeon. He had gloves on & surgical blades... changing regularly.... insisting that we go eat, while he took his time, carefully making cuts. Not your average hunt or skinning. He is an artisan I assure you that. So much so... I was like E, hurry the F up... let’s go. He was like..... buzz off.... I’m busy, go eat without me.

Another good review for @gizmo 's hunting operation! Brad how about some pics of the boar and coyote?
 
Great write up. I hiked Guadalupe Peak this past weekend and found myself looking for aoudad continuously.

Yes you bet! I’ll post later today.... once I got unpacked, played with kids, caught up with wife.... went to bed, now back at work.
 
@BWH, 30-06, ttsx 165 gr... but what was the distance to shoot aoudad?

O, btw, congrats for great trophy!
 
168gr...... it was across canyon shot. Stiff north wind whipping through the canyon. It was less than 200m. Approximately 150’ish.
 
Congrats on the ram!
 
wow a 2000lb white scimitar oryx. Gizmo sigh me up for that animal if it is 2000lb oryx. LOL ;)

Great job on the ram
 
Yeah.... closer to 500 I reckon. However, they are the size of a cow. How can a solid white “cow” evaporate/ghost.... they can!
 
Thanks for posting, and congrats on a beautiful ram!
 
I total agree and why I don't buy in to the fence hunting is not a hunt. The lay out of the land and cover can make any hunt hard. I don't care if it is 1000 acres in texas or 5000 in Africa the fence is all but a small part of how the hunt happens.
 
The Rockin G is made up of several different parcels..... for example....if you were to take one of his 750 acre parcels & lay it flat. It would be about 2000+ acres. Add in thick cover & Mother Nature = good luck to ya’!

great idea on the coyote mount and that is a very nice pig. You doing a shoulder mount or half mount on the ram
 
@gizmo really wanted to do a 1/2 body. However, that is like a 6’+ y’all mount. So I’m concerned with wall/ceiling space. Going with shoulder

What'd the new pup think of the 'yote?

Scimitar cows are about 350-400 lbs. Bulls will weigh 400-650lbs

Yeah.... little Stella.... she’s a mess! She wants to sniff, bark, attack & retreat.... typical puppy action: she has to go to boot camp soon!!!!!
 
Congrats on the yote and pig! And nice work @gizmo !
 
Looks like you worked for your ram. Nice job. I'm sure you'll get a great looking mount.

I wish we had an aoudad ram in the shot placement guide.

Shoot it like you would most any African animal. On a broadside shot follow the front leg up and put the bullet where the vertical line from the front leg and the horizontal line that marks the lower third of the body meet.

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
